No wonder I always want to sit on the floor at meetings

I thought it was just me and my bad posture, but now science is proving that sitting at a 90-degree angle is not what humans were made for.

    "Researchers at Woodend Hospital in Aberdeen, Scotland used a new form of magnetic resonance imaging to collect images from 22 healthy volunteers, who assumed three different sitting positions: slouching posture in which the body is hunched forward, an upright 90-degree sitting position, and a relaxed position where the subject reclined backward 135 degrees. They concluded that the reclined position is the best, and the forward slouch the worst."

So, hoteliers, will we get backward-leaning chairs for the meeting space any time soon?
